Therapy for Trauma

Feeling on edge, irritable, or ready to snap?

Do you experience poor concentration or feel easily overwhelmed?

Do you suffer from trauma related scars, nightmares, or flashbacks?

Do you avoid situations or reminders of the traumatic event?

Are you suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, or depression?

Trauma can alter how the brain functions, and its signs and symptoms can vary from finding it difficult to trust and being constantly on guard, to sudden panic and intrusive, anxiety-ridden thoughts. Trauma, without question, can significantly lessen your quality of life.

And while the signs and symptoms can feel complex and at times overwhelming, feeling better is more than possible. In fact, with trauma therapy, you can expect to begin feeling better as we implement effective techniques together as we work towards helping you heal.

I’ve helped many people gain positive ground over their traumatic experiences in a safe and supportive environment. I offer a variety of therapeutic approaches to best support you and work with you as an equal collaborator in your treatment and healing.

So if these sound like you…

  • I struggle with anxiety or depression
  • I relive traumatic events with accompanying unwanted memories, vivid images, and physical signs like sweating, palpitations, and panic attacks
  • I am hyper vigilant or easily frightened
  • I feel edgy or irritable often
  • I feel like the joy, love, and other positive emotions have been sucked from my life
  • I’d like professional help to better understand and cope with previous trauma
  • I want to live an easier, happier, more connected life

…Then trauma therapy may offer the ideal therapeutic approach for you.

Trauma therapy combines different approaches and techniques to help lessen, even eliminate, the painful mental and physical responses raised by the memory of traumatic events, and seeks to create new healthier patterns in your brain.

In trauma therapy we work with you toward lessening, even healing, the pain. It’s our goal to identify the source and triggers for your emotional and physical suffering, to discuss ways to deal with unhelpful and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors, and to teach you techniques to manage distress and enable you to move forward. If you would like me to show you how to take your next steps down the road of recovery, please contact me today for an appointment.
